    Description
    'Utterly compelling ... And they say genre fiction can't be art' THE TIMES (Our favourite 50 novels of the past 70 years) 'As gripping now as it was 50 years ago' THE TIMES 'Masterful suspense . . . The Day of the Jackal changed the shape of popular fiction from the moment it was finished' BEN MACINTYRE, THE TIMES ________________ 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY LEE CHILD One of the most celebrated thrillers ever written, The Day of the Jackal is the exhilarating story of the struggle to catch a killer before it's too late. 1963. An anonymous Englishman is hired by the Operations Chief of French terrorist organisation O.A.S. to murder the French president, General Charles de Gaulle. A failed attempt in the previous year means the target will be nearly impossible to reach. Only one man could do the job: an assassin of legendary talent known only as The Jackal. This remorseless and deadly killer must be stopped. But he is a man without a name, without an identity; a lethal spectre. How can you stop an assassin nobody can identify? The task falls to the best detective in France - and the price of failure is unthinkable. ________________ 'In a class by itself. Unputdownable' SUNDAY TIMES 'Very clever and immensely entertaining' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A perfect example of the adventure story . . . well written, entirely believable, with this intriguing, enigmatic character at its centre' ROBERT HARRIS 'A year-zero, game-changing thriller, one of the most significant of all time' LEE CHILD 'Wonderful and way ahead of its time' JAMES PATTERSON 'An extraordinary book' NICK ROBINSON, BBC RADIO 4 TODAY PROGRAMME 'A masterpiece' MARCUS SCRIVEN, MAIL ON SUNDAY 'I was spellbound . . . riveted by this chilling story.'

    Truth or Fiction !!!!

    WoW,, always loved Frederick's novels. Highly descriptive. It is so well written that one will get confused whether this based on a true story or not. Well, most of the characters that i have come across in his novels are true characters, description is so damm accurate and some portion is intelligently mixed with fiction, making it the best read. I am still scratching my head after i read 'The Odessa File', even in google i cant find a definative answer to whether the odessa file really exis...

    An exciting journey through suspense and politics. Loved every minute of reading this book. Cleverly paced and makes you travel through France's volatile political environment. One of the best works of Frederick Forsyth.

    Unputdownable and Unforgetable.

    There are books that stay with you long after you have read them. THE DAY OF THE JACKAL is one such. I have read this book a few years ago, but having lost my old copy (and being an avid collector), i purchased it again. Reading it for the second time was as good as the first.

    Now there is no point discussing the plot but for all FORSYTH fans out there- this is a must read. It's the master's best work and for readers new to Forsyth, i suggest you start with this book. You will become his fan...

    Best in it's genre

    BEFORE YOU READ IT, I would recommend all readers to read a little about the French-Algerian war. This would seriously help during the first few pages.

    Coming to the book, Frederick Forsyth did a brilliant job. The research done for the book is deep, precise and amazing. Forsyth goes deep into the 1961 French.
    You'll think it's just ordinary people trying to kill the President of France but it's not.
    Forsyth appropriately describes the O.A.S and the politics related to the appointment of Pre...

    Magnificent!

    I was eagerly waiting to write on this for the last couple of weeks but decided to wait until I finish the book. So, as you can rightly guess, I finished it yesterday night, and phew! it was GOOD, really REALLY good. A thoroughly enjoyable story, superb narrative style of Forsyth, pin-point detailing, highly-paced and really witty and lovable choice of words. And what I liked most is its ending, just an appropriate ending this kind of tale needs, an ending that leaves you in thoughts, leaves ...
